The line of six for the Arsenal job 0

The speculation about who would succeed Unai Emery as the Arsenal head coach were mounting even before the club decided to part ways with the Spaniard, and since it happened it’s gone through the roof. However, the names are always the same, always the same quartet.

Freddie Ljungberg has been appointed to the role as a temporary solution, but according to, he is also the leading candidate for the permanent role. Giving the former Arsenal midfielder a proper chance would likely prove a popular decision among the club’s supporters, at least in the beginning. After that, the amount of love and support he’d be receiving from the Emirates stands would likely depend on results and performances. He has no experience in first-team management, but he knows the youth setup well and young players would certainly benefit from his appointment.

On changing the club’s fortunes:
I think the only way to change an atmosphere in the stadium is by how you play. Like you said, the fans were amazing at Norwich. I felt like they got more and more energy the more that we played in the first half. We were on top of Norwich and I think the Arsenal fans got energy from that. That helped. But they were great, even when we went 1-0 down or 2-1 down, they were even louder and they helped us. That’s important for the players. When it comes to the Emirates, the fans want us to win football games. They want us to play good football and I think the only way to try to get a good atmosphere and get them going is to try to achieve that. Whether that’s me or someone else as a coach, I don’t think that matters so much.

Arsenal are in need of a big result when they go up against Brighton at the Emirates tomorrow, as they attempt to bring their eight game winless streak to the end. Caretaker manager Freddie Ljungberg will be hoping to prove that he’s the man for the job, especially after their recent draw against Norwich.

The legendary Frenchman, who was in charge of Arsenal for 22 years before the club decided to part ways with him and appoint Unai Emery in his place last year, is now working with FIFA as their Chief of Global Football Development. He was interviewed by Sky Sports recently in that capacity, and naturally, the subject of Arsenal and their actions and fortunes these days were an inevitable item on the agenda.

It’s safe to assume that nobody really knows what direction Arsenal Football Club are going to go in next. The expectation for this season has always been that they will challenge for the top four and may go after a trophy or two, but with Unai Emery being sacked before we even hit December, a lot of fans can be forgiven for thinking that everything is a bit up in the air now.

The Premier League season is in full flow right now and we’ve got a lot of fun European football to look forward to alongside that. However, we’re not so sure that anything compares to the thrill that comes with the FA Cup. The oldest club football competition may have lost its spark in the eyes of many, but for Arsenal fans, this has always been a competition that has agreed with them.

Rodgers plays down Arsenal links 0

Brendan Rodgers has moved to quash the rumours linking him with the Arsenal job following the sacking of Unai Emery.

Currently doing a wonderful job with Leicester City, the Northern Irishman started his managerial journey with Chelsea’s youth setup where he learned the ropes from Jose Mourinho between 2004 and ’08. His first full-time projects were Watford and Reading, but he really made his name when he guided Swansea City into the Premier League and helped them establish themselves as a stable top-flight side, before leaving to join Liverpool in 2012.

On implementing his style on the squad:
I say in the pre-season, in five or six weeks, you can implement how you want to play football. That’s the good thing about pre-season. It’s not what I have and I just try to do small building blocks and try to change things in a slow tempo, so hopefully we can understand it and practice it, but right now we have players who need to recover and we probably only get one and a half (training sessions) again before the next game. That’s football, for me I just try to make it as simple as possible for the players and hopefully we can get better.

It wasn’t the ideal start to life as Arsenal caretaker manager for Freddie Ljungberg this weekend, but in many ways, it doesn’t really matter. He’s only at the beginning of his journey and regardless of how long it lasts, the Gunners were probably somewhat fortunate to come away with a point from this game.

Today, we’re going to take a look at his press conference following the 2-2 draw against Norwich.

Arsenal draw with Norwich in Ljungberg’s debut 0

Arsenal caretaker manager Freddie Ljungberg took charge of his first game for the club today, and it’s safe to say that it was quite the rollercoaster ride. The Gunners were only able to salvage a point from their clash with Norwich City, extending the club’s winless streak in all competitions as they remain seven points behind the pace of the top four.

A thrilling encounter

The visitors looked lively at Carrow Road but it was Teemu Pukki who popped up with his first goal in eight games to give the hosts the lead. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was handed the chance to equalise just a few minutes later, and while he may have seen his first attempt get saved, he did manage to score the second attempt as the first was ruled out courtesy of some Canaries players encroaching.
